In the Spring of 2002 - I was living in Beijing, and searching for a Qigong Master in China. I contacted many Qigong schools, centers and people I met, searching for a traditional program. Through pure luck, I gained an introduction to Master Wang Tao who taught traditional Taoist Inner Alchemy as found in the Northern Taoist Complete Perfection School.
In order to learn with Master Wang Tao, I had to travel across China to the far North East in an area called Anshan, in Liaoning Province - my destination was 'Thousand Peak Mountain'. This was a very long journey, and little did I know, but this encounter would be an event which would change the entire course and direction of my life.
The program which Master Wang asked me to follow was very detailed, highly organised, exact and strenuous - day in and day out - rising at 5 am to perform the prescribed 8 Longevity Qigong Exercises as our warm up, and then...

Tao is the noumenon of all universal things.
It is soundless, formless, and intangible.
It is not bright, not dark, and hardly nameable.

Tao is formless, but it gives birth to Heaven and Earth;
Tao is merciless and gentle,
but charges and empowers the movements of the Sun and the Moon....
